These bloomed yesterday and I'm so excited because (1) I've never had daffodils before and (2) they're
the bulbs I got from Laurie Halse Anderson (explanation here
) and (3) they make me feel connected to LHA and all
the other writers I communed with that weekend.
It may sound corny but these lovely flowers symbolize the commitment each of us has made to creating real and true stories for young readers. And that makes me feel good.
